We just put our 3 barred rock chicks and 2 keets outside. Within 3 hours a dog dug under their run and got all of them.1 keet is missing, assumed dead by feather pile. The other keet is missing all feathers on her back. Out of the 3 barred rocks 2 survived. I have not fully inspected them, they are in shock so im letting them rest. I have no idea where to put them right now! They are about 4 weeks old. I have a momma hen and her 11 chicks inside occupying my mud room. The chicks are about 2 weeks. Would she attack the injures ones if i put them back there? Im not putting them back outside. Any advice would be great. Or is it ok to take her away from her chicks so i can let the inhured ones be with the babies? She still is very protective over them, she will not let us come near!
